Membership Renewal

Your Chichester U3A membership is due for renewal by September 1st each year. Currently, the fee is £18 per member, or at a reduced rate of £14.00 for those who have paid the full membership fee at another U3A (Associate Membership).

PLEASE NOTE, If you have missed the renewal date or have previously been a member some time ago, please do not complete a new form but contact the Membership Secretary on 07460 109600 in the first instance.

First Update Your Details

If any of your personal details (email, telephone number or address) have changed recently you can update them online by clicking here, alternatively, inform the Membership Secretary of any changes. Please do this before making your payment.

If you wish to update your preferences for Gift Aid, The Newsletter, Bulletin, and/or Third Age Matters Magazine please visit the Membership Preferences page before making your payment.

If your Membership type is changing between Joint and Individual, or Full and Associate, please contact the Membership Secretary and only make your payment once we have confirmed the change.

How to pay for your membership

You will need your Membership Number – it will be on the Renewal email/letter, and is now shown at the top of the weekly Bulletin emails.

Bank Transfer or Standing Order

This is our preferred method for payment. It is easier for us to record your payment if you pay this way.

To pay by Bank Transfer or Standing Order, please first generate your unique payment reference by following the instructions in the box below:

Third Age Matters Magazine

Through our affiliation to the Third Age Trust, the ‘Third Age Matters’ magazine is sent out 5 times a year to all members who have requested it. We know that many members enjoy reading the magazine, but others send it rapidly towards the recycling bin. While we hope you will maximise the benefits you gain from membership, we don’t want to waste either money or paper unnecessarily. If you would like to either add or remove your name to the ‘Third Age Matters’ subscription list please visit the Member’s Preferences page.

On behalf of the Committee we hope you are enjoying your membership of Chichester U3A and that you will continue to support our groups, activities and events. We are always looking for more volunteers to help organise new groups and events.

If you have any queries please contact the Membership Team.
